Surface immobilization and bioactivity of TGF-ß1 inhibitor peptides for bone implant applications
(Journal of Biomedical Materials Research Part B: Applied Biomaterials, 2016-02-01)
TGF-ß1 is the most related cytokine with the production of fibrotic tissue. It plays an important role on the production of collagen by fibroblasts and other types of cells. The inhibition of this ...
Surface guidance of stem cell behavior: chemically tailored co-presentation of integrin-binding peptides stimulates osteogenic differentiation in vitro and bone formation in vivo
(Acta Biomaterialia, 2016-10-01)
Surface modification stands out as a versatile technique to create instructive biomaterials that are able to actively direct stem cell fate. Chemical functionalization of titanium has been used in this ...
Characterization of ferrofluid-based stimuli-responsive elastomers
(Frontiers in Mechanical Engineering, 2016-12-12)
Stimuli-responsive materials undergo physicochemical and/or structural changes when a specific actuation is applied. They are heterogeneous composites, consisting of a non-responsive matrix where ...
